Digital Booklet
In order to tackle Beethoven's mighty Missa solemnis, the period instrument ensemble Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century formed a partnership with conductor Daniel Reuss, who has recorded a sizeable number of acclaimed choral masterpieces, many of them with the Dutch chorus Cappella Amsterdam. The choir, possessed of the vocal agility and stamina required to climb this glorious mountain of a work, is joined by an outstanding quartet of soloists in soprano Carolyn Sampson, alto Marianne Beate Kielland, tenor Thomas Walker and bass David Wilson-Johnson.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
